What was the last movie you saw in theaters before Covid?

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (Feb 2020)...and man did i not like this one. just not funny, terrible action and really nothing i haven't seen before. even though i like the players involved, this just didn't hit for me.

So before the pandemic hit and closed all the theaters, etc, what was the last movie you saw in the theater? (does not include just going back recently, if opened near you)

I think it was Charlie's Angels at the nearby discount theater

Onward, at a theater in Anaheim, after three days of Disneyland. Yeah that wasn't the smartest vacation one could take in early March 2020.

My last trip to a theater was on December 31, 2019 to see Greta Gerwig's LITTLE WOMEN at the Angelika Theater in lower Manhattan.

was the whole Covid crisis out there yet? i think it started around March, so you probably didn't know then, right?

Thanks for the vote of confidence, but no, we knew. Walked around with hand sanitizer, tried not to touch much (there's a Millennium Falcon ride where you press a button over and over again, which really grossed me out), only ate from the Embassy Suite omelet station, not from the buffet. Half measures. Plus mostly happy that the park was so empty on Thursday and Friday - - it got packed with locals on Saturday though and that was a lot more unsettling. We knew, we just didn't take it seriously enough. That vacation was supposed to be spent in Italy and France, but we canceled because it was so bad in Europe and the United States was safer back then. Good times.

ah, well, beginning stages so you couldn't possibly know how it would grow into what it has become. but you aired on the side of caution and don't think anyone got sick in your household, so alls well that ends well...

Same movie... opposite opinion. Really enjoyed it. Margot Robbie nails the role.

Honestly? I don't remember. It must have been in December or January.

she's great in the role, no doubt and i do love her. liked her in SS, but this was too much for me. i think her sadness over Joker is better portrayed in the animated series imo...

The Way Back. I was planning to see Onward and Bloodshot shortly afterwards and then news of coronavirus started circulating.

Re: What was the last movie you saw in theaters before Covid?

Before I opened up my AMC A-List app, I tried to think of what it was. I was pretty sure it would be 1917 or Parasite, but a few weeks later on February 17 I took the kids to Jumanji: The Next Level. We liked it. I'm a sucker for chase scenes with 10,000 mini problems to solve along the way and the scene on the rope bridges with the apes was just a blast. I had a feeling how the horse would show up, given the poster, and the ending was quite beautiful. DeVito was good, and there was part of me who wondered what would it be like if it was Danny Glover and Joe Pesci together again, they're good together.

Saw Birds of Prey and Sonic the Hedgehog on their opening weekends, so Sonic would be the last one. I think A Quit Place 2 would have been the next one I would have seen in theaters.

Probably 1917, I have my stub somewhere. But I rented a theater and saw Alien a few weeks ago on 35 mm (with proper precautions) so that was cool. And I got tested after (negative), just for good measure.

Same film for me, in early January. Later I was going to see Parasite but by that time it was already on digital, and I figured I could rewatch it if I just bought it. Was going to see Birds of Prey in early March, but there were limited showings, and in-person activities were already looking unappealing.

I caught The Hunt in my local theater on March 15th. I can't recall for sure, but it's possible that I was the only one in the theater for that particular afternoon showing.

The animated series is incredible. Really hope we get more.

I'm pretty sure it was Sonic.
